RE: hot water dispenser

Next time it happens....... Feel the water line on instant hot. If it's hot then you'll know If it isn't then you'll know other problem exists. Process of elimination as you are there to check things out.So what you are saying is that the hot water is mixing with the cold water?causing the hot water heater to overheat.If it is hot hot how do i go about installing a check valve?

RE: hot water dispenser

Sounds like the 'instant hot' hot water backflowed into water heater causing the PRV to leak. A check valve on line to instant hot should solve that. Course I don't know how you have it plumbed..... It could have just been because you lost the 'air gap' in top of water heater tank. And when water heater made hot water IT caused the PRV to leak. To re-establish air gap Turn off water supply Open closet facet Hot side to relieve pressure Open PRV via lever.... (CAUTION WATER COULD BE SCALDING) when water stops flowing out let it snap closed Turn on water supply Close faucet ON EDIT: This is the same problem you posted about early. You also posted you have three valves on water heater......3 valve system don't use check valves. You need a check valve to stop backflow from instant hotInstant hot is tee off of cold side.How could it be back flowing?

hot water dispenser

I have one of those instant hot water dispensers located on my kitchen sink.The other day i hooked it up.I plugged it up and left my hot water heater on.A while went by and i noticed my hot water heater was leaking on the outside.Is there a rule that you cant have the hot water tank on at the same time as the instant hot.

RE: kwikee step

I think i will try replacing the door swith and magnet.The only problem i dont know if i need to replace it with a normally open or closed.I recently had the controller and motor replaced and not sure what type of switch is their now.It is one of those black round type swiches but i understand there are two different kinds.Normally open and normally closed.How can i tell what kind to go with?

kwikee step

I am thinking about installing a rocker switch to bypass the controller.I understand the controller is used to to stop the voltage once the step has extended or retracted to keep the motor from burning up.What is the correct switch that i would need to get to accomplish this setup and keep the motor in good shape?

kwikee step

I have a kwikee step with a round megnetic door swith.I noticed that if i move the switch around it would activate the step.I took the switch completely out of the door frame.If i move the wires around on the switch the step starts to operate.I wonder if it would be just a simple task of replacing this part or if their is something else wrong.It doesnt seem to be any damage.It seems to still be together.Their looks to be factory looking sealant around the wiring and seems to be intact.Although i know if their is a short i probably wouldnt be able to see it.

tach signal

I have a 454 tbi engine.The coil is a little different from what i am used to.It has two plugs on top with two wires running from each of the plugs.One is red and the other is white.I cant figure out for the life of me what i am doing wrong.first off i am using the power from the dc plug.with the wires coming from the dc plug that i have hooked in i hook the red wire from the tach to the hot on the plug and the black wire to the ground on the plug.Than i hook the green wire to the white wire coming from the coil.I am not certain but i think at this point should start to see a reaction from the tach.It does nothing on either white wire side on the coil.I am pretty sure that one of these white wires have to be the the tach signal but not sure now.

vacuum gauge

I have located a bolt on top of the intake manifold on the drivers side on my 454.I would like to install a vacuum gauge their.I know i would have to unscrew this bolt and attach some kind of fitting.I have no idea how or what to use in the place of the bolt as a fitting.May it be rubber or metal.Can someone give me an idea of how to go about this?

air chunk

do they make an air chunk adapter for an air compressor that will screw onto the valve stem of an rv tire?If so what are they called?

air pressure

I have a tire that is low and i am having a hard time airing it up.when i hook the air hose up to the valve stem it looses more air than what is being added.It seams like no matter how hard i press down on the connection i cant seem to get it to stop.Are there any adapter that will aid in this problem?

air compressor

Can anyone recommend a dependable portable air compressor.I have 19.5 inch tires and they air up 75lbs in the front and 80lbs in the rear.I only really need one to top them off after storage.Any ideas?

RE: check valves

Does it look like this WH.......3 shutoff valves Normal in service valving: Top one OPEN (Hot outlet) Bottom one OPEN (Cold inlet) Middle one CLOSED (Bypass) BYPASS Valving---WH out of service Top Closed Bottom Closed Middle Open http://www.classbforum.com/phpBB2/download/file.php?id=1872Is this the way it is supposed to look when it is operated?

RE: check valves

I found the answer to my last question.It seems if i have them all open the water wont be as hot.The only puzzling thing about that is i have them all open and the water is very hot.

RE: check valves

They are not check valves, they are basic shut off valves to direct flow in a particular direction. My valves allow me to direct flow to bypass the WH. When I springerize, I direct the flow into the tank. My handles point in the direction of flow.Should i have all 3 open if i am using it? No the one between the hot and cold should be closed when in normal operation. That valve is called the bypass and would be open when the other two are closed keeping the winter RV antifreeze out of the HW heater. JMOIf i happen to have them all three open and operating it what would happen?

check valves

I have 3 check valves on the back of the hot water heater.I have dewinterized it and not sure if i have set them back the way they are supposed to be.Can anyone tell me the way they are supposed to be set?I have heard they need to be set to prevent back flow but not sure how.

RE: water heater

Sounds like the 'instant hot' was back-feeding into WH which caused the PRV to operate.....opened and allowed the 'hot' water/steam to vent Either you don't have a check valve on WH tank hot out or if you have one it is stuck open.After i gave it some time to cool down it seemed to operate normal again.Almost as if it corrected itself.If the chck valve is stuck open how do i correct it?
